This is one of my favourite Who shows from '71; not only because it took place in South London (not far up the road from me) in the same week as my birthday, but more importantly because the tape (despite some good old-fashioned hiss) has a really nice sound balance: the snare drum is loud and clear, the bass is a solid metallic thud that doesn't boom too much, and there's a hell of a good time had by all. Listening now to the total destruction of the guitar and drums at the end does lovely things for the imagination; and the master of ceremonies explaining to the crowd that there wouldn't be an encore because the drums were "everywhere" is just priceless.
Many, many thanks to Scirius for uploading this beautiful piece of Who to LongLiveRock.org

Stage Banter Transcription by Tom Pratt!
Artwork and MD5 Verification Files are included.
A decent audience recording, but not the complete show. This show was the "Goodbye Summer" charity concert to benefit the Bangladesh Relief Fund. The Who headlined a day long show that featured Cochise, The Grease Band, Lindisfarne, Quintessence, Mott the Hoople, America, Eugene Wallace, Atomic Rooster, and The Faces.
According to "The Who Concert File" the concert was MC'ed by Jeff Dexter, and not Rikki Farr as the artwork incorrectly has listed.
The Who had a nice smash up at the end of Magic Bus, lead by Keith Moon who bashed away at his drumset with a cricket bat that had been loaned to Dexter from the Surrey Cricket Club, and stolen by Keith to use as drumsticks.
The event was recorded on 8-track Dolby Sound using the Pye Mobile unit, but none of the soundboard recording has yet surfaced. If anyone has this, please let us know!
